Off The Record is a local family-owned record store whose primary purpose is to provide high quality new and used recorded music to you, the customer. The owners, Twilla and Gary Pruitt believe the store belongs to the community. That community consists of you, the customer, the local music artists, the local music venues, our suppliers, our knowledgeable and friendly staff, the recording artists you most want to hear, and lastly, someone to manage and merge all the common interests where music is concerned. To us, the music really matters and everything we do is in support of that belief. We grew up here, raised families here, and have a vested interest in the community. We hope you will visit our store and make it your own.
